Chelsea's morning after on Book Boyfriend Cafe #HotForFriday

Chelsea didn't have the best morning after.

"Chels. Wake up. Hi. You awake?"
 She yawned.
"With me here or do I have to do the whole who's-the-president thing?" Hunter chuckled.
She sat up in bed, rubbing the sleep out of her eyes. "You have clothes on."
"I have to go. There's a big forest fire at home. Lightning strike started it. It's burning in three different locations."
"How'd you find out?"
"A crew's getting ready at the main house. I went for a run and stopped in for a coffee. They are leaving in..." Hunter looked at his watch. "Fifteen minutes. I'm going with them. It's the fastest way to get me back. I marked home in the GPS. It's really easy, just follow..."
An idea filtered into her mind. "You're leaving?"
"Yea. I have to go back and help. The forest is pretty dry this time of year and this could really get out of control. It rained here, but not back at home. They're going to need every available body."
"But what do you know about fighting fires?"
"I grew up in a conservation park. Think about it. I have to go."
"But what if I don't want you to?"
Hunter stuffed his clothes into his duffel bag. "I know this sucks. I hadn't planned on abandoning you, this is important."
She crossed her arms and leaned back on the head board. "And I'm not."
"Quit being childish. You know you mean everything to me, but this can't be postponed. I can't call up and say I'm busy and can they hold off the fire 'til next week." He dropped his bag and sat next to her. "I'm really sorry. But you have to understand."
"If you were really sorry you wouldn't leave. How am I supposed to get home?"
"I said I left directions. It's pretty straightforward. I also left Mom's phone number." As he leaned over to kiss her, Chelsea pulled away. Hunter blinked. "I don't know what your problem is, but I have to go. You have two choices, follow those directions to my parent's place or get on a plane and go home. Your choice." He picked up his duffel bag and walked out. 

Lies, deceits and secrets - not a good way to begin a relationship.

What people are saying about – A Guy and A Girl

5 Stars - I loved this book...I think that it was an awesome story. It was interesting on how everything came about as well as some surprises on who was doing what. I liked how the couple had issues that would be real life issues as well. Very well written, can't wait to read more books by Victoria as well as maybe some more in relation to characters in the book.

5 Stars - What a great romance. Fast paced. Chock full of tension. Little bit of hockey Little bit of dance. Lots of love.
